Children's Activity Event


Getting close to nature can be a great way to enhance the well-being of the whole family. These simple drop-in sessions run by Woodland Classroom are a great way to get started understanding more about the beautiful natural world around us. The whole family can try their hand at shelter making, fire starting, and cooking some simple outdoor foods.

There is no admission or event fee for these activities, and no need to book. Just drop in and see us in the Wild Play Area by the car park. Please note: the castle and gardens are closed. The Home Farm drinks Kiosk and Shop will be open.

Children over 7 welcome accompanied by an adult. Activities are suitable for the whole family. If the event is busy there may be a wait before you can take part in some activities.
